The Shouts service shows a DX-pedition's blog and log that are either updated online or offline for later updating. Shouts has no delays between the source and the web, unlike manual information systems. Furthermore is all the information disclosed ensuring that all stations have access to all details at the same time.
In the blog the DX-pedition can publish pseudo static comments and general feed back to the stations looking for the DX-pedition. In the log the contacted stations can be listed with additional information.
The webpage is automatically updated when new information is received from the DX-pedition.
When a message is posted and the DX-pedition station was offline while writing the message the time stamp is followed by an asterisk, e.g. 2006-06-01 12:34 * AB1CDE C.
